December Events Recap
From President Elect, Michele P. Miller

Leading at all Levels - Bob McEwan. The snowy day did not keep members away from the networking and breakfast meeting provided by 84 51. Hooray!

Lisa Kappesser, Senior Consultant at LEI Consulting and EQ Coaching Solutions, LLC and Bob McEwan, owner of Bob McEwan Management Consulting, LLC co-led a 1-hour presentation on the importance of using emotional intelligence in leadership roles. More

Harnessing Your Accomplishments - Dean Waggenspack. Career and Life Coach, Dean Waggenspack led an engaging webinar on "Harnessing Your Accomplishments" in December.

Participants learned to recognize that we do not always clearly describe our accomplishments. Instead, we tend to overestimate what others know about the situation and under communicate what is important to convey. More

Thank You, Board Members, for a Great Year!

As we begin 2017, let us give much deserved thanks to our 2016 Board Members who are stepping out of their roles. 

Kerry Loeffler, President, Pam Nintrup, Past President, and Rosalie Catalano, VP of Finance, provided direction, inspiration and a tremendous amount of energy in their positions over the past year. 

We appreciate your leadership and laughter; and we hope we will continue to see you often in the future. Thank you.

We also welcome a new board member, Debra Savage, as VP of Finance and our Professional Development VP, Michele P. Miller in her new role as President Elect

And as our new Chapter President, we'd like to thank Randi Sandlin (pictured above) for stepping up and leading the chapter beginning in 2017. Randi's dedication as VP of Professional Development, Communications, President Elect and Conference Chair have been invaluable to the Chapter.

84.51°, Thanks for Hosting our December Breakfast Meeting, Leading at All Levels

Our December meeting was brought to you by the generosity of our friends at 84.51°.

We sincerely appreciated the hospitality of 84.51° for hosting us and providing the continental breakfast to our members and participants.

Our members and our affiliates would love to see where other professionals work, learn, and have fun just like we did this month. Would your business or workplace be interested in hosting a GCATD meeting or event? We love to provide different venues for our membership to learn. If this is something you'd be interested in coordinating, let us know.

Coming Soon: GCATD Directory of
Coaches and Consultants

GCATD is in the process of creating a directory of coaches and consultants that will be made available to companies and other organizations in the Greater Cincinnati area. 

The directory will provide an avenue for client organizations to find and select GCATD coaches and consultants. This directory will be valuable to member coaches and external consultants because it would facilitate the use of their expertise. It will also be valuable to internal consultants and professionals as it would help them find people who can provide a different perspective, additional resources and/or complementary expertise. Members of the directory committee include Adam Feiner, Melinda Kelly, and Rhonda Pfaltzgraff-Carlson (pictured)

To participate in the directory's development, come share your perspectives and ideas at the Consultants SIG held on January 6th at Bronte Bistro.
